In Memoriam

Got this in an e-mail from a friend, and I am sharing it here. Most everything is going to be Fred's words, not mine. Just...take a look at the dates. And take a moment out of your day tomorrow to think of him.




Adam Davis 27 Jul 1987- 23 Jul 2007
Adam,
You are missed and never forgotten. You are a hero and an inspiration and you would be proud that the family is still in the fight and the new family of "youngsters" have stepped into your place are bold, brave and not afraid. Please guide them to do the right things, guide them to be honorable and guide them to shoot straight and dispatch the enemy.
We will drink one for you tomorrow to honor your life and the sacrifice you have made...it is not in vain.
your cousin,
Fred
The warrior understands so well that, because of the unpredictability of life, not only may future hopes never materialize, but also that he may die at any time. We all like to believe that we are going to be alive next week, next year, or in five years, but not so the warrior. He or she knows that we have no guarantees upon life, and that death can therefore tap us on the shoulder at any moment.

Do me a favor, & spare a thought for Fred too if you can. He's in Baghdad at the moment.
